Science weekend!

We have had a lovely weekend with some time spent at Sheffield's festival of the mind, in particular the Museum of curiosities and Fish for science.  The museum was the Alfred Denny zoological museum stuffed full of interesting specimens including this 'double specimen' of a porpoise.
Alex was fascinated by the museum, listening closely to our guide and asking lots of questions about the various artifacts and curiosities there.
We then went to the fish for science exhibition where he really liked looking at the fluorescent zebrafish down the microscope and extracting DNA from strawberries.  He was amazed and so excited to watch the fluffy white DNA strands emerge and float to the top.  As a result he asked loads of questions about DNA and how God made us, and took his questions to sunday school this morning!
Crafting wise I made this tag/bookmark using distress inks, Hero Art, JustRite, and Woodware stamps, gold embossing powder and promarkers.  As this captures the autumn colours perfectly I am entering it into Tuesday Throwdown's 'Fall colours', Crafty creations 'Autumn', Simon says stamp 'anything goes', DYSU 'scallops', Delicious Doodles 'Autumn' and Crazy4challenges 'leaves' challenges.  That is all from me for now.  I hope you all have a great week.
Good Bless,
